    After I get done with the current builds I am working on I was planning on getting one for the kids pc and doing a mild oc. Let me know your results when you finish playing with it.

    What are the odds that I find this Thread??? I just aquired the by luck so that means no cash involved just scored it from a giveaway a while back and Ive never really spent a lot of time reading up on the AMD FM1 series Cpu,s so now Im trying to figure what to do with it! Just some reading Ive done in cpl days I feel like this series is approching its END OF Life use and wondered if any of you guys are using it now? I was considering putting a build together for someone thats not a an Avid Gamer but use it for home/ office ! Dont want to put to much in it and not be able to find a motherboard for it a year from now should something go wrong! Any suggestions
